2:07am
the event to call us. someone knows who did this. >> but the images of the remnants of the bomb are providing important clues. this was a pressure cooker often made by terrorists to make ied's. it may have been stuffed in a bag with black nylon. one al qaeda affiliate has specifically mentioned pressure cookers. the homeland security warned about the devices after one was used in the attempted times square bombing. the fragments themselves the doctors have been removing from victims. >> that will be the job to find out where the nails came from were they purchased at lowes or home depot or a small town close to the scene. if they were when they were purchased. is it possible to determine who purchased the nails and when they did. >> in that vein nain they are painstakingly to reconstruct the

2:15am
but in terms of security, physical security measures that are being put in place, those are quite subtle. those are things that the police officers don't talk about. we have seen a very large presence this morning of sniffer dogs out and about. again you have the dual concerns of protests by people who were opposed to margaret thatcher's policy before she was a very divisive prime minister. we could see some of that sparking today. we could also then, of course always appears in london as minuted jitters more now than ever after the bombing there's always concern about terrorism, international terrorism we had bombings in july of 2005 here and there has been numerous, numerous thwarted bomb plots. the counter terrorism agency stepped up their surveillance looking at cells reaching out to communities where there may be

2:18am
grand central station falls under two of the designations not only a landmark with you a transportation hub. commuters are seeing bags being searched mailboxes being taken away, garbage cans being covered. they are seeing heavy increase of police presence here. the commissioner tells us there has been an increase of reports of suspicious activity in the wake of the bombing. in the last couple days there have been two reports of bomb scares in the city. the bomb squad was called out to two separate jobs. none were prank calls. that doesn't under score the need to be vig gent. they will stay in place until boston determines who was behind the attacks. the big question a lot of them have especially in the city how is this going to impact future events? >> we have our marathon planned and plans for this weekend.
